shipping a saddle

What packaging do I use to ship a saddle? Do I use a standard box with bubble wrap or is there a perfect method for shipping one?

Any box that's large enough Stuff some crumpled newspaper around the saddle and you're good. Saddles are tough, fine china not so much.

Thanks rdtompki!

I just didn't want something showing up at someone's door and they are dissatisfied with the packaging.

Carefully wrap it in organic acid free paper, then use recycled plastic bubble wrap, followed by a repurposed shoe box...

I agree that crumpled newspaper and a decent box is really all you need.
